TradeMagic 3 Beta 1 / TM Info 11

Dear TradeMagic user,

1) TradeMagic 3 Beta 1 is released. Here are the highlights of this new release:
- support for options and indexes
- download, local storage and management of historical data
- your TM repository now can be driven by MySQL DBMS
- DTN/IQFeed is supported
- ESignal is supported
- TrackData data and brokerage is supported
- free YAHOO data is supported

TradeMagic 3 is FREE for personal, non-commercial use.

Check out the complete list of features.
Learn more here on how to upgrade your existing installation.
Download from here.

Limitations:
- Not all tests have been passed successfully. Do not use this release in operational environment, but for development only.
- There are known issues with the DTN/IQFeed client software which prevents TM from properly closing a connection: you have to terminate your app after closing a TM DTN connection. DTN announced a fix. You will be posted as soon as this fix is available and incorporated in TM.
- There is a known issue on requesting daily historical data from ESignal. This may result in not receiving the complete requested dataset. Re-issuing the request will work around this issue. ESignal announced a fix. You will be posted as soon as this fix is available and incorporated in TM.
- ESignal does not support a connection status: you will not be alerted in case the connection between ESignal and its servers got lost. ESignal announced this feature. You will be posted as soon as this feature is available and incorporated in TM.
- TrackData does not support order changes. This issue is subject of negotiations between Pact (the supplier of the TrackData myTrack API) and TradeMagic. You will be posted in case this limitation would be alleviated.

2) New web site
A new web site provides improved information on TradeMagic. The URL stays the same: www.trademagic.net.

Intereresting product but without support for Bloomberg, Reuters or Comstock you are unlikely to have much luck with hedge funds.

How fast is the tick history retrieval?
For example, how long would it take to recover 5 million ticks from the database?

Hi,

1) Thanks for your suggestion. Please place your vote here: http://www.trademagic.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=64

2) Speed of tick retrieval
Let me put it this way: I used the algorithm, which worked for me as I developed my own ATS backtesting system. But this does not mean that it will work for you. You probably have to find out by your own.

I would be happy to hear your experiences.

Hello Dierk,

I have had a chance to look at this now.
It is a mdi container application with broker and gui forms and objects exposed through a .net API.
So you can use the API to construct your own trading application around this framework.
It is certainly generous of you to offer this application for free.

I may be able to use some of the gui elements but would need to plot charts.
Does the application support charts of any sort as I could not see any appropriate classes?

Hi,

Let me give you the right perspective: it's more on connectivity and data/order/execution management than on gui. The real value is the API where you can access popular brokers and data providers through a common interface - although you may use the gui components too.

Charting is not included right now.
